PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Portland jury unanimously acquitted a 55-year-old man of aggravated murder, a crime that occurred 35 years ago.

The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1ReUlkg ) that Antonio Wabol will be released from Multnomah County jail Wednesday, hours after the jury reached their verdict and more than 3 years after he was charged with the 1980 killing.

In July 2013 a jury deliberated for nearly two days before declaring it had deadlocked on the question of Wabol’s guilt. His new trial began last week.

A crime lab linked DNA on a mask to Antonio Wabol. He was charged in the shooting of a 29-year-old Portland State University student, Myong Su Cho, who was working at a Plain Pantry store.

The defense lawyer said there was DNA from four other people on the mask.
